Why are you playing politics and blocking the confirmation of a qualified judge?
Senator Al Franken (D-MN) recently announced that he will not turn in his "blue slip" for David Stras, nominee for the U.S. 8th Circuit Court of Appeals. A "blue slip" is an illogical Senate tradition in which Senators from a nominee's home state must hand in permission slips before the Senate Judiciary Committee can move forward with confirming them.
Senator Franken is playing politics with the American judicial system. With over 100 vacancies on the lower courts, America is facing a judicial crisis -- but Senator Franken is more committed to blind partisanship than doing what's right. Stras is a highly qualified nominee who deserves to be confirmed.
